as the president's people told us did end up being demographics and turnout. latinos continue their embrace of the democrats and the rejection of the republicans. the white share of the vote was 72% which was exactly what plouffe, axelrod and mecino told us it would be. we want to break news here. >> we have mugs. we are excited. i'm sure our viewers are excited. >> on a day of big news, this was breaking. >> this is what we care about. no. we get in to the politics of this, what happened, the demographic break down and quickly say what this means for the country. health care stays. it means paul ryan's budget is essentially irrelevant since they weren't able to get the majority in the senate and maybe more importantly i think latino voters made their voice heard loud and clear to both parties in this election and comprehensive immigration reform of some sort will have to be a priority in the next administration. >> you're absolutely right. the gop has to move to the left on the immigration. latino issues. black and brown voters emerged this year as power brokers saying white people cannot
saying he wasn't legitimate and saying it was stolen and fearful where that person will lead us? >> aing thi think that depends determination of citizens across the country that are outside the normal teams that operate in the two campaigns. we have a professional middle class in america. they're stoking the fires of fear. as i go across the country, people want the country to work together again. if a republican wins, they want that republican to work with the democrats and vice versa. i was out in the great plains. that's a part of the country doing very well. they didn't do any of the dumb things with subprime lending, agriculture is booming and unemployment in north and south dakota are under 5%. if they can make it work, why can't they make it work in washington? we need more of that to move the country forward. we're still playing by 20th century rules in this country in almost everything we do and we're in the 21st century. what's so striking is we're all in awe of silicon valley and all it produces for us. this transformative technology. what's the mantra of silicon valley? be di
, the fiscal cliff is one artificial construct cooked up by the congress and the president to basically get us to think about a much bigger problem, which is what you pointed out. entitlement reform and tax reform and all the big issues and putting america into the accounts. the problem is the president -- i mean, you know, frankly has all the leverage here. so he doesn't need to compromise that much to get half, if not three-quarters of what he wants. >> i think the president is feeling that he has the leverage. one thing we've seen is he's going to take this message to the people. it seems to me he's learned a little bit from the fights he had before, leaving it all in washington giving the republicans a lot of leverage. making it a national fight and bringing in the voters makes it something with more leverage. did he learn? is he going to play this fight out differently? >> if there's anything he learned from the election but not just the national election but where you had the referendum where people were very, very happy by and large to let the rich pay more. i think you're going to see
only solve together. >> because the american people expect us to find common ground, we're willing to accept additional revenues via tax reform. >> legislation is the art of compromising and consensus building. >> despite all the frustrations of washington, i've never been more hopeful about the future. >> i'm not up suggesting we compromise on our principles but we commit ourselves to creating an atmosphere where we can see common ground, where it exists and seize it. >> i want to work together, but i want everyone to also understand you can't push us around. >> so to help interpret what we just heard, we bring in a man who lives, eats and drinks washington. that's our friend howard fineman, he's the editorial director of the huffington post media group. >> guilty as charged. >> a con ciliary tone there. what struck me yesterday with john boehner he was saying as we approach the fiscal cliff, boehner was saying yesterday that the bottom line for republicans after this election is the same as it's been for 22 years. that is, that any kind of income tax hike, especially for the weal
. she's back for us in toms river. michelle is the only reporter to make it into the neighboring community of seaside heights. so tell us, michelle, what you saw there. >> reporter: well, we were there yesterday and also early this morning. and the devastation there is just sort of unbelievable. it plays tricks your eyes when you look at the boardwalk, the place you're used to seeing people walking and running. then you look back further and you see that iconic roller coaster, and it's just plopped in the water. that's because sandy, all her wrath, came in and just wiped out that boardwalk from beneath it. and that's just one section, that iconic amusement park, that landmark that people relate to that is damaged. then you've got all the surrounding homes, the beaches, the beachside communities that are linked in that area. and some are hit harder than the others. and that water came all the way right where i'm standing and further inland. and they're just now getting that water that's been receded in that area. and what they've been focusing on the last few days is rescue operat
. four americans were killed in the aattack including u.s. ambassador chris stevens, two members of the cia. david petraeus appears at both hearings tomorrow morning. there were doubts his testimony would happen given his abrupt resignation, but petraeus reportedly volunteered to testify saying it's the right thing to do. the "wall street journal" has an interesting look into petraeus's final days in the agency including reports of interagency finger points and rising tensions. kelly o'donnell is on the hill, and kelly, two months since the attack and finally top intel players are on the hill. frustration seemed to really be boiling over. what's going on? >> that public hearing that you showed some clips from really showed how politically charged this is. that is not where the secret briefings are taking place. that's a separate thing. it was a show place for the partisan divide over benghazi. when you talk to those on the intelligence committees in the house and senate, there's a sober approach to this as far as getting to the fact finding. david petraeus will be here tomorrow.
a good point. the president has to use capital. we need republican cooperation to get anything done in this country, important things. >> right. >> why rip off a scab and an open sore trying to build that cooperation? that's on the one hand. on the other hand, the president i believe, deeply believes that this is unfair but i think his first goal was to stand by susan rice's reputation and i think he did a pretty good job of doing it here. it would be odd to me if he fought this battle because it does have ramifications if he fought it and susan -- i mean s.e.'s right. i don't think we get 100% of the democrat votes unless the president wastes every bit of capital he has. >> on that. >> i agree with steve, we'll see her be nominated and this was a very passionate defense and it seems like standing up a bully and i guess the answer why to spend the capital, loyalty. known her for a long time and treated unfairly and i want to turn a little bit to the petraeus questions where we saw multiple times asked about the petraeus situation and the question comes back to when did the president
? i eat breakfast, come to work, blink and it's time for the show. really? >> no wonder it took us so long to catch bin laden. these guys were probably waiting for him to check in on four square. really? >> really? and don't think you're getting off easy here jill kelley. you tell someone about weird e-mails you're getting and you don't think someone might check your e e-mails? really? it's the fbi. you dent think they are going to follow up? have you never watched an episode of any show ever? really? >> and really unnamed fbi agent, you became obsessed with a woman while investigating her in an e-mail scandal and then e-mailed her shirtless photos. really? weiner, chris lee, brett favre, it's 2012. it's time to recognize the male physique carries zero allure. stop sending us pictures of it. >> don't you watch "homeland"? that show is this exact story line. i defy you to find one happy character in that whole show. no really. go ahead. >> really? >> really. defend your gender. >> that's pretty good. >> i used to write novels and sometimes i look at things that happen in life and it's
of spending from the u.s. economy by raising taxes and cutting government spending at the same time. that's more than 2% of gdp, and the economy is only growing at 2%. it's an absurd thing to try to do. more than that, though, i want you to recognize that the kind of deal that they seem to be cooking up in the clouds, namely cutting taxes -- raising taxes by 150 billion and boehner getting his way, cutting spending by $150 billion, that's $300 billion, that's a lot of negative stimulus also. it might not be 500 but 300 is a locality. >> i think steve said something about a gradual slope ned of a cliff. the cataclysmic that he was talking about. initially those kinds of tax increases don't kick in until much later. they're now talking about pushing back spend cuts as well. look, peter is right. we're looking at fiscal contraction next year, and it gets back to the first set of comments. that's not what you want to see about an economy growing around 2% with a highly elevated employment rate. let's not forget about the jobs part of this, and also let's not forget that temporary spending on
of thumb, we don't use polls on voting day, so we don't skew the electorate. we know this race is going to be close. all eyes are on the battlegrounds. we get the first results in four hours when polls close in virginia. 30 minutes later ohio closes followed by florida, new hampshire and pennsylvania at 8:00 eastern. colorado and wisconsin at 9:00, nevada and iowa where this all started close at 10:00. i already hit the polls this morning with krystal. i wonder if we canceled each other out? >> we look so happy. >> toure took his son with him before work. steve, we shipped him out to battleground virginia so he can cast an aabsentee ballot yesterday before he left. as for the candidates, obama is the first president ever to do early voting. mitt romney was at the polls this morning in massachusetts in an 11th hour decision he added two stops today. they're not official rallies but are billed as him thanking supporters. read into what you'd like. he's heading to pittsburgh right now and was in ohio earlier at the same time joe biden was there. you can see air force 2 sneak in behind the
then candidate obama promised us so very much, but he has fallen so far short of what he promised. as senator portman just said, he promised that he'd have a post partisan presidency, but it's been the most partisan i've seen with decisiveness and bitterness and division and demonization. hallmarks of his presidency. he said he'd focus on creating jobs, but instead he focused on creating obama care, which killed jobs. he said he would cut the deficit in half, instead it's double what it was. he said he'd get unemployment by now down to 5.2%, and we learned today it ticked up to 7.9%. that's 9 million jobs short. those are real americans. can't find work, 23 million in all can't find work or can't find work that's up to their needs. can only five part-time job. this is a critical time. the president was a president who took office with the economy as the number one challenge, and you know, he's got a higher unemployment today than when he took office. think of that. >> the president is also scheduled to speak this hour in ohio. we'll bring that to you live also. the story everyone here in new
, and cease going to provide us with new details ahead. >> all that plus has the obama presidency been good for black people? we have a guest that says not really. buckle up. you're in "the cycle" for friday, november 9th. >>> so the election is behind us, and it's time to confront the fiscal cliff, or as we at "the cycle" call it until we invent poetic phrasing, the gradual fiscal slope. whatever you want to call it, it's staring you in the face. two hours ago the president flanked by middle class taxpayers said this in the white house east room. >> the american people voted for action, not politics as usual. our job now is to get the majority of congress to reflect the will of the american people. what the american people are looking for is cooperation. they're looking for consensus. they're looking for common sense. most of all, they want action. >> the president has invited congressional leaders to the white house next week to start negotiations. he's made it clear that the election is a message that the people won't compromise. >> i intend to work with both parties to do more. i'm not
